    Thank you for publishing the article on Eugene Brickley. Iin-law heard of him from my late Mother- in-law Blanche D.(Brickley) Kirby. I got out of touch with her relatives after her death. I was happy to find this site. Now my children & grandchildren may learn of the event
    Remembering “Brick” and other thi who gave their lives this Memorial Day Weekend.
    Thank you
